Hyundai Motor Group is at the forefront of creating emerging mobility solutions that will foster the development of human-centered cities. The Group’s Urban Air Mobility Division is designing a completely new electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft tailored to the mobility needs of future cities, allowing passengers a seamless intermodal journey that safely transports them to their final destination. We fuse research in autonomy, robotics, aviation and services to define a new category of mobility for the world’s communities. We believe in creative thinking and collaboration to help build a better mobility experience for everyone, improving people’s ability to move – whether for work or play.

What we do:

At GAM in the Battery Technology & Innovation Team, we have embarked on a mission to support creation of a ground-breaking future in urban air transportation using eVTOL (Electrical Vertical Takeoff and Landing) aircraft. We believe that innovation and creativity at each step in the development are the keys to bringing solutions that help to improve the lives of common people. If you are a person who does not accept the status quo in this regard and wants to be part of crafting this exciting new future along with us, this is where you belong.

We work on the cutting edge of Battery Technology to build a state of the art, safe, sustainable and efficient energy storage solution for eVTOL aircraft. For this purpose, we are looking for an outstanding Battery System Development Engineer to support us pushing packaging technology for HV battery pack further. The ideal candidate must be self-motivated, passionate about electrified aircraft development, and capable of quickly adapting to direction changes.

What you can do:

  • Design of HV battery's system structures. Perform analytical and physical assessments on battery system to ensure the design’s robustness and reliability, as well as to match with requirements
  • Build engineering tools to provide trade-off studies between packaging efficiency, thermal, NVH prior to and/or during design phases
  • Responsible for battery systems FMEAs including safety features
  • Build and contribute to component specifications, verification plans, and other technical documents
  • Collaborate with battery component suppliers to support new technology development
  • Collaborate with the battery integration team to optimize and improve the battery system design including the thermal control system
  • Collaborate with battery test and validation team on DVP&R activities

What you can contribute:

  • Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering or relevant engineering discipline with 5+ years of proven experience in HV battery system design, development and testing with strong materials background (structural composites, thermal interface materials, thermal barriers, foams, etc.)
  • Proficiency in CATIA and at least one of battery system modeling/simulation suite
  • Ability to demonstrate excellent understanding of mechanical structures and thermal analysis of a battery system
  • Proven experience developing engineering tools/processes to support analysis and design
  • Professional knowledge of Lithium-based batteries
  • Experience with DOEs for performance evaluation and hardware test & validation for HV battery pack

You may also be able to contribute:

  • M.Sc. or higher in ME or similar with 2+ years of experience in designing high voltage and high power battery pack
  • Experienced working in aviation with DO-160 and DO-311 familiarity
  • Experienced working with regulatory agencies
  • Experience in CAE applied to HV battery development with
  • Knowledge of optimization techniques & application to CAE and product design (i.e. multidisciplinary design optimization, DOE/RSM, topology optimization)
